In a word: JGB. She fit with JGB. We could argue about whether she was necessary to the sound but she was certainly a lovely enhancement. She is smooth as silk and perfectly modulated, she croons and lilts and keeps up and even belts it out where necessary rarely hitting a wrong note (and of course she's feeding Jerry the lyrics sometimes, but I guess anyone who performed with him had to do that!)

Scarlet Fire - nope, she ruined that, it would be hard to persuade me she ever made a contribution there. I find I am on edge listening to that song in case there is unexpected Donna outburst. She can sound downright deranged on Scarlet Fire, whooo whooo, aieeeeeeeeee ...

I agree completely. Been checking out some "78 JGB the last few days where she really sounds great!!
